My Make-Up: Then and Now.

The evolution of make-up and all things beauty fascinates me. I don't just mean formulas and how we are now able to completely change our faces, which really is one of the true beauties of make-up (pun definitely intended) but also the changes we make in our beauty regime. People that are now in their mid-20s went through stages of over fake tanning and buying pale MAC lipsticks, like Creme De Nude. My personal evolution has been slightly different...

My Room.

It's official - today is the day I set off on my travels. In fact, I'm just about to leave for the airport. My suitcases are packed and I'm ready to go. As I plan on travelling, I'm limited in what I can take. I'm taking the necessities but, as I'm so into fashion and own a lot of clothes, this has proved to be a challenge. It also means I've had to leave everything in my room behind, including my memory box (another post on that soon!). My room is like my sanctuary. I've worked hard to make it homey, cosy and to make it a space that represents me and one that I want to spend time in. As I won't actually be spending time in it for a good while, I thought I'd share some photos of my favourite things in my room. I feel like it'll be a nice post to look over when, and if, I start to feel homesick.

Wishlist #1 - The High-End Beauty and Skincare Edition.

If there's one thing you should know about me, it's that I'm constantly writing lists. No, not the type of to-do list that you're probably all used to... Think wishlists. My bookmarks are full of beauty and fashion items. My bank account doesn't actually permit me to buy many of them, so what better to do than to share some of the items I'm lusting after than in a monthly wishlist?! This month's wishlist is a high-end beauty and skin care wishlist...

Coco Melody Sale.*

Can someone please explain why I keep finding myself thinking about weddings? I think I'm going to one in November but, other than that, there's no reason for me to be thinking about them. I've even been listening to romantic songs, thinking how nice they'd sound at my own. Bit weird, considering I'm currently single. I'm guessing this is down to my brain thinking about all the wedding emails I've been sent from brands, asking me to take a look at their dresses, including Coco Melody...

Birthday Haul.

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! Well, okay, it's not... But it was almost a month ago. I turned 19 and I now feel incredibly old. I love other people's birthdays, I'm just not a massive fan of my own. The whole existential crisis thing probably has something to do with that. I actually spent my final teen birthday sitting university exams - fun times! Thankfully, my birthday was made a lot better by some lovely birthday presents. Some are actually yet to arrive/be picked up, but I thought it would be nice to share what I've received with you so far anyway...

Planning a Party - Novum Crafts.*

I set off for London in six days time, so most people would consider now the ideal time to plan a party - I know I did. I had planned on throwing a leaving party to say goodbye to my friends. I had everything planned; the food, the decorations, who I have going to invited... Thanks to the lovely people at Novum Crafts*, I even had a costume. I ended up not throwing the party - I think it had something to do with the fact I couldn't bare to say goodbye, even if it was going to be for a short period of time. Even so, I thought I'd share with you some of the ideas I had for the party...

September Favourites.

Up until now, I've found monthly favourite posts to be a bit of a challenge. Living on a student budget, I've never really gone through enough beauty, skincare or fashion products to share with you each month, but that's about to change. I have no idea how, but I've really started to rotate my beauty products (and buy more), meaning new favourites and plenty to share with you all. Let's have a look at what I loved throughout September...

New Beginnings.

I think it's time we had a chat. For a while now, I haven't been very happy with my blog. I think that, along with having loads of exams, is the reason I've been dipping in and out of it... But that's all about to change! I'm about the head off on a gap year, so what better time than to start again?

Cultural Appropriation.*

Cultural appropriate. It's a bit of a tricky topic, isn't it? Not really one you'd typically find on my blog,  I know, but it's one that I happen to talk about quite a lot in day to day life. Admittedly, those conversations tend to lead to arguments as no one can agree to disagree and people feel so strongly about the subject. Is it okay to wear bindis? Or how about Indian headdresses? I think there is a final line between demoralising someone's culture and respecting it.

There are a lot of things I hope to do in my life. There are the obvious choices on my bucket list like to be happy, have a family and to accomplish everything I want career wise, but there are also a few of your not so typical options on there too.

Autumn Essentials.

Fun fact - tomorrow is my birthday and I will be spending it sitting university entry exams. Yes, happy birthday to me! This post was obviously written in advance due to the fact I'm currently cramming like a maniac but, hey, you can't say I don't try. The weather is officially changing and I'm just about ready to change my beauty products, as well as some items in my wardrobe. Here are some of the products that I will be using throughout the Autumn months.
